Super Bowl Recipes!

Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday...which means some super food for watching the game. I'm passing on a few of our tried and true super recipes but I warn you...they are not healthy. They taste good though, so when the game kicks off, dig in and diet tomorrow:-) P.S. I didn't include the obvious...veggies and dip, fruit, cheese or cheese ball and crackers. You can handle that part:-) By the way...Go Cards! (Sorry Steeler fans. I can't bring myself to cheer against Kurt Warner.)It's time for the good guy to come out on top:-)

The first recipe is Nacho Chicken and that is what is on our menu tomorrow night...along with moist southwest cornbread.
